I just finished with my now 4 year olds "Cars" Birthday Party and I thought I would show some pictures to my DISfriends of some things I made. Most everything is in my 4shared file in the "parties" file and the "Cars" subfile if you would like to throw a "Cars" party of your own. Or even have a fun "Cars" dinner with just your kids. The good news is that a new "Cars" movie is supposed to come out next year...so if you have a child that loves Cars, then there should be a lot of thing available if you want to have a party. Save the Date: Knowing that kids love to get mail, I sent a Radiator Springs postcard from LM (that is Lightning McQueen for those of you that aren't familiar with the Cars movie) and Tow Mater. I made these at home and printed on white cardstock so that they would be thick enough to make it in the mail. I know the backside looks smudged but I purposely designed it that way so that it looks like an old postcard...or at least like it has traveled across country. I loved the racing stamp image that I found online so I actually dropped them off in each child's mailbox myself. Invitation: I looked online and found several invites that I liked so I combined them to come up with my very own invitation, and since I was having a "cars" theme party with a race track...I just had to send a ticket as well. I was planning on making the invitations 5x7 and printing at Walmart, but since I had to wait until the last minute to find out what dates would work for family traveling from out of town...the 5x7 would have cost around $23 dollars to develop 12 photos using the one hour developing, so I opted for the less expensive 4x6 that was under $5.00. If you have time and can send your photos out they are a lot less expensive to develop the 5x7. To make the invitation bigger and more professional looking, I trimmed off the black border and added a 5x7 piece of black cardstock behind the picture. I printed the ticket at home on white cardstock and inserted it into the envelope with the invitation. I printed mine so that they were 7 x 2.3 inches. I love to make fun invitations as it can help build up the excitement and anticipation for the party. Next post will be Pit Passes and a few things I made getting ready for the party! If you like what you see so far...keep watching as I will try to get everything posted over the next few days. Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions about how I made the different things.
